“All handwork is not necessarily good, but all good work is handwork. ” So wrote Ellsworth Woodward, founding director of the Newcomb College art program in New Orleans. In 1885, a progressive educational experiment, the H. Sophie Newcomb Memorial College began there in association with Tulane University. It was the first women’s college at a previously all-male university in the United States, and the work created in its studio is the subject of an exhibition at the Wolfsonian-FIU. Women, Art, and Social Change: The Newcomb Pottery Enterprise provides glowing examples of ceramics and related decorative artworks that explore enduring social and design issues. In doing so, it showcases the Wolfsonian’s mission of connecting politics and people to the objects they inspire and produce, with emphasis on the period from 1875 to 1945. The commercial viability of Newcomb Pottery proved a mixed success. The work itself, captivating if not groundbreaking, carries the mark of a significant social experiment. Cathy Leff, the Wolfsonian’s former director, is a Newcomb alumna. She saw the exhibition last year and recognized “it’s a perfect fit” for the Wolfsonian. Richardson explained that about a decade after Newcomb first opened, program officials “saw the success of their art students and thought, ‘We could make this into a profitable enterprise for the women. The Arts and Crafts Movement originated in England as a counterpoint to the dehumanizing Industrial Revolution, which had mechanized much of European and American labor force activity in the interest of product standardization and profitability. The dignity of handwork was central to this movement — and vital to the formation of the pottery studio within Newcomb College. In contrast to industrialized decorative arts production, in which each worker had an assigned role such as forming handles or painting roses, the Arts and Crafts model gave each designer-artisan ownership of the process from sketch to final polish. Each work carried the mark of its maker —– both stylistically and with a signature or stamp. One of the Arts and Crafts movement’s founders was art critic and social philosopher John Ruskin, who advocated artistic training for artisans and hands-on training for designers. This bridge between mind and hand was central to the Newcomb art program, which emphasized a pairing of utility and beauty in multiple artforms. Contemporary potteries and art tile works like Cambridge, Grueby, Rookwood, Muresque, Malibu and Teco produced ceramic ware of comparable sophistication. Newcomb was distinctive in its focus on regional design. Early on, Newcomb studio managers decided to focus their design vocabulary on flora and fauna of the American South. Regional plants and animals are readily apparent both in sketches and in the finished artworks. The traveling exhibition, organized by the Newcomb Art Gallery in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institute’s Traveling Exhibition Service (SITES), also features jewelry, metalwork, needlework, linoleum prints and bookbinding. The Wolfsonian has contributed a fine audio guide, collateral programming and its own American Arts and Crafts-style artisan display tables. The Wolfsonian also provides access to its permanent collection with myriad examples of kindred pieces — primarily from Europe. “Despite the name, they did a lot more than just pottery,” said Richardson. One of the Newcomb program’s first instructors, Gertrude Roberts Smith, was a respected painter. she connected painting with needlework, which became the second medium in the art curriculum. Newcomb embroidery is esteemed, but less for virtuosic stitchery than for the sophisticated color mixing of the pink, pale blue, yellow, green and creamy silk threads, anchored with dusky rose and burgundy. These are applied with darning and running stitches, mostly to buff-colored linen, often creating a pointillist optical mixing effect. While motifs were repeated, each individual Newcomb piece was unique. Newcomb Pottery was a business run primarily by women. Source: www.miamiherald.com
